Oasis Belgium is part of a worldwide family of organizations working to help the most marginalized find community, choice, and hope. Oasis is a Christian organization motivated by the belief that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity.
Inspired by the life, teaching, and example of Christ, the purpose of Oasis is to transform communities and to work with people who are excluded from community. In Belgium, that vision has lead Oasis to run projects supporting the children of people without papers, helping them to stay in school, eat well and have stable accommodation while helping the parents to regularize their papers and find work. Oasis also runs a project that helps women who have been trafficked escape exploitation, find community and employment. For Oasis Belgium, the issue of excluded and lonely elderly people is also very important, so they have a project which helps to connect isolated elderly people to community.
Oasis works hand in hand with local communities, embassies, churches, and other institutions to bring about long-lasting change in the lives of women, children, and elderly people in Belgium. Their goal is to offer compassion where hurt is rampant and to bring community to places of loneliness.
